Digamma armchair designed by Ignazio Gardella coming directly from Dino Gavina’s personal collection. Digamma was one of the first models to go beyond the limits of rationalism. Armchair formed by two rigorously geometric volumes, albeit imbued with the irony of its notorious “duck feet”. Metallic structure. Rubber padding on elastic straps. Original upholstery in velvet. Three-position reclining backrest. Brass finishes.
